Broccoli Carrot Salad

"When I sampled this at an eatery, I was struck by the mix of sweet and salty flavors and different textures," recounts Katie Watson of Powell, Tennessee. "I asked our server for the recipe, and she obliged...adding that she often prepares it at home herself."

    Very easy tasty salad. I added a little sugar after tasting it because I thought it could use a little sweetness. So colorful it makes a great addition to any meal.

    Instead of coleslaw dressing, use equal parts of vinegar, sugar and oil. It's very good.

    I've made this many times. It's good and really easy. I use low-calorie coleslaw dressing.

    Delicious! Made it for a Labor Day picnic. I used Marzetti coleslaw dressing, only change was that I used pine nuts instead of sunflower kernels since that's what I had on hand. It's so easy to make!

    This salad is easy to make and is good! I use Rudolph's coleslaw dressing and sometimes use dried cherries instead of cranberries. When I bring it to potluck dinners I am always asked for the recipe.
